In addition, Cole is known for her ability to bring out the talent in each student with which she works. She believes in teaching the student not just the violin, but also developing each student’s innate musical gift through nurturing guidance.

The Gitner Award was started in 2013 by Deanne and Gerry Gitner. The Gitner’s are fans of the Lynn University Conservatory of Music and felt strongly that excellent teaching should be rewarded. The 2013 award was given to Professor Thomas McKinley.
